Mystified - Vagabond [ISA1303]
Continuing a development of character, and the way it corresponds with atmosphere, "Vagabond" is lighter than "Transient", but not as nautically jolly as "Pirate". The album finds a happy medium, full of drones, mesmerizing patterns, and slices of experimental electronica.
Mystified feels that "Vagabond" works especailly well as a total experience, and hopes that listeners will be able to enjoy it in totality-- and if not, that they will be able at least to think of the album as a whole.
Thanks especially to Dr. Royce Lee for his artwork and inspiration.

Mysterious Ambient Electronics
Excellent electronic ambient release whose various soundscapes are made cohesive by an overall mysterious, almost threatening, atmosphere and ominous track titles. Melancholy, eerie electronics and brooding, portentous beats are the rule here. Listen to this one in its entirety - it has a sad tale to tell.
